The Cure Becomes The Disease
Whatever we are attracted to solve our problems – be it knowledge of science, religion, politics, literature, music, medicine, drugs, sex, conspiracies or just the latest ideas – ends up causing us dis-ease if we hang on to it. Even realising our true reality can have a backlash (an adverse reaction) if our conduct lacks compassion.
The secret is to acknowledge and enjoy whatever we were attracted to, and then drop it for the real thing; the satisfaction of knowing pure consciousness, that is absolutely clean with nothing lingering.
We use soap to clean off the dirt,
and then we wash away the soap.
Know, and let go.
